68 Theresa Zabell – Sailing Olympic Champion

Theresa Zabell won Sailing gold in the 470 class at both the 1992 and 1996 Olympics.

Theresa is our guest on this episode of the Best in the World with Richard Parr.

The 5-time World Champion now runs Fundacion Ecomar, which teaches children about sailing and the environment. She has also worked in the European Parliament. We talk about this on the podcast.

The Spaniard discusses her disappointment of not being selected for the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. Richard asks what it was like for Theresa to compete in front of her home fans in Barcelona in 1992.

Plus Theresa talks about raising sponsorship for her sailing team.
